Oct 2012: We see a pig and Shakespeare's house #1

So we all piled into the car and went to see Sangeeta’s Mecca. Lovely little place

And there is a beautiful looking pig being slow roasted, absolutely brilliant. It was too early so didnt manage to grab some slices of that succulent pork..mmm. But as I type, 4 pork chops marinated in whiskey, honey and mustard are in the oven :)
